NEW THIS YEAR! 

MRC is partnering with Cambridge Main Street to bring our film festival to Cambridge!

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call-to-action that transforms film-goers into committed activists dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. We show environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities around the world are doing to protect the environment.

For the first time, MRC, in partnership with Cambridge Main Street and Dorchester Citizens for Planned Growth (DCPG), will host a program in Cambridge on Friday, November 13 at 7 pm at the Dorchester Center for the Arts, located at 321 High Street.
